"Wow! What a fabulous webinar from start to finish. I was thrilled by the question and answer period. I am tempted to ask, 'Was it scripted?' The thoughtful questions flowed so beautifully and complemented and enhanced the professor’s lecture so very well that it is hard to imagine that these were just random! I can’t wait until next week."
